Nicola Brown

Partner

Before joining MWB as a result of the merger in Autumn 2023, Nicola co-founded Pure Employment Law Solicitors in 2010.

She qualified as a solicitor in 2002 and gained experience in employment law at two of the South East’s leading law firms.  In 2006 she received a Distinction in her Masters degree in Law and Employment Relations.  She has expertise in all aspects of employment law, including discrimination, dismissal, breach of contract, pay and benefits and family-friendly rights.

Nicola provides strategic HR and employment law support to a wide range of organisations and helps her clients deal with major projects such as restructuring exercises and transfers of undertakings. She is also an experienced Employment Tribunal advocate.

Nicola regularly presents at seminars and workshops on employment law and enjoys delivering interactive training sessions.

Nicola has been ranked for many years now as a leading employment lawyer in ‘Chambers UK, A Client’s Guide to the Legal Profession’ – Nicola’s clients described her in the 2019 guide as:

“very helpful and technically very correct, with a strong customer focus and response time. Her service is very good in addition to her pragmatism. She looks after you.”

Chambers 2020 included the following feedback about Nicola:

“She is balanced and realistic with her advice, enabling us to clearly understand the risks and opportunities associated with a specific plan of action.”

In addition, the Legal 500 United Kingdom 2021 quoted a client as saying:

“We only dealt with one of the partners, Nicola Brown, who was everything we had hoped for. The situation we were in was a first for us and Nicola was great at explaining the process and what to expect. She put us at ease in terms of any potential worst case consequences and was excellent at successfully facilitating the process as described above.”

Nicola is a member of the Employment Lawyers’ Association, is a former President of Chichester & District Law Society, and has many years’ experience as a governor at two local schools.

I was recommended Mayo Wynne Baxter to represent me regarding a private matter and I couldn’t be happier. Nicola was exceptional and made the whole process seamless. I can not be more delighted with the level of service provided. I highly recommend if you want an excellent service for any scenario which will come with a human touch.

Nicola provided clear and helpful advice in respect of my rights and obligations under an agreement with my employer. Very professional. Happy to recommend.
